Yesterday I went out for a stroll in the park, and decided to rock my inner bad girl. The weather was hot and a bit cloudy, perfect to take few snaps for the blog. I am wearing the Dior shirt in leopard print from Goldies Clothing – formerly known as Cindy Bangs -, which is such a great garment to pair with a pencil skirt. Inspired by the New Look from the late 1940s, goes very well with my Zara pencil skirt. Since I’ve lost weight in the past months, I’ll have to stretch both garments a bit!
Anyway, I hope you all like the pics. Oh, and might do a blog post about how to wear pin up style garments to the office with style! 😉 This shirt is very classy and sophisticated, and embraces my curves very well.

A good pair of capris is a pin up girl’s best item for Spring/Summer, don’t you think? I am in love with the Lizzy capris in white. I used to dislike this color on me because I felt I looked horrible wearing it, but I am absolutely in love with these photos! Oh, and they have tiny polkadots!
The lovely Desdemona Style nominated me to the Liebster Award, and she asked me 10 questions to know more about me. So here you go!
1. What is your name?
Valentine’s Day is vastly approaching, and whether you are planning a date with your partner or a single ladies’ night out, you need to start planning your outfit in advance so that we all look fabulous on February 14th. I’ve picked some wonderful garments for you all ladies to get inspiration for that special day.
Hi lovelies! How are you doing? This is my first post of 2015, woo-hoo!
How is the new year treating you all? It’s only been 12 days but I am enjoying it so far. My job at a fashion magazine is going really well: I couldn’t ask for a better job at the moment!
Today I am showing you all my outfit, inspired by the hashtag #JennyJanuary that Miss Amy May, a gorgeous and lovely gal I follow on Instagram, decided to create for this week (12th-18th January). If you own any Pin Up Girl Clothing Jenny skirts or dresses, make sure to post an outfit pic to join the conversation on IG so that other users and fellow Pin Up Girl Clothing fans can see others’ outfit ideas. Sounds fun, huh?
I styled my Jenny Skirt – which I purchased during the Black Friday sale among with other items – with a basic jersey from H&M and a pair of pink shoes from Los Angeles, a lovely shop in Barcelona specialized in cute designs on shoes.
I promise I won’t take long to show you another outfit!
It is a late 50s/early 60s dress from a Spanish designer in perfect condition and has pockets!
I’m fine, let’s just say. Really looking forward to the end of July so that I can enjoy my holidays in the sun, although I dislike sunbathing. At least I will be able to rest a bit, get some sleep and spend time with my friends without rushing.
I have wanted to write this post for a long time, but I thought It would suit better in July or August, so here it comes.
Many 1950s and 1960s fanatics are really into the Hawaiian and Tiki scene. As an European and coming from a country with lots of prejudice and closemindness, this is quite hard to adopt, but not impossible. I love 1940s and 1950s photographs from young couples wearing their tiki garments in the US. The fascination for tropical scenarios and traditions began in the 1940s, shortly after WWII. And since then, tropical flowers, tiki statues and surf sounds can be seen (and heard) all around the world.
I have owned this amazing vintage romper since last year, when I travelled across southern USA. I fell in love from the very first moment I saw it; I knew it had to be mine. & moreover, it is a vintage garment from the 60s! 🙂
By the way, If you’re into 50s inspired music bands, check The Hula Girls. They play rock and roll, surf and tiki music, so feel free to give them a try. You won’t regret it, I promise! Turn the volume up and sing with me: Hawaii…is not that far away!
